A new series of multifaceted music colloquia continues at Eastern Mennonite University Thursday, Feb. 25, with Judy Dines, a flutist with the Houston Symphony, the Greenbriar Consortium, the Ritz Chamber Players, and the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra.
The presentation will be livestreamed at 12:20 p.m. on the department’s Facebook page.
Her colloquium will include an interview and a masterclass, in which Dines will work with sophomore Samuel Soste-Taffur following his flute performance.
The music colloquium series began in early February with Amanda Gookin and continues March 25 with Noa Kageyama and April 15 with Deepti Navaratna. Find recordings and upcoming livestreams on the the department’s Facebook page.
“Since everything is virtual, it is a wonderful opportunity to bring many more great artists from around the nation and even around the globe to our students,” said Professor David Berry, director of the music department. “It is not every year that we can bring such a diverse array of top-rate artists and presenters to our students in one semester.”
The colloquia includes a mix of students performing for and learning from the guest artists, interviews, and lectures.
“We have found these combined modes of presentation to be very engaging for everyone no matter the spectators’ area of musical specialty,” Berry said.
